The former prophets, Joshua through Kings, discuss God's relationship with Israel.  This course covers the conquest and settlement of the land, the rise and fall of the Israelite monarchy, and the exile.  Particular attention is given to Israel's faithfulness to the covenant, and God's blessing, testing, and disciplining of Israel based on their covenantal obedience.
